September 18, 2011 we went camping with Title VII Indian Education up Hobble Creek Canyon at Jermiah Johnson Cub Scout Camp. We had tons of fun! One of the first things Kody did was go to the pond and jump off the rope swing. They also found a train cart with bow and arrows that they started playing with. Eileen Quintana is the director over Nebo Title VII, she brought cradle baskets for Lilly and Logan to help them be warm and feel safe and secure. The first night we had a yummy pot luck dinner. And the kids ran around being kids. At night time Rocky kept sneaking up on the kids and scaring them. It was just a lot of fun! Rocky, Lilly and Logan and I, all slept in the van to keep the babies warmer, and Kody slept in a tent by himself. Kody really did not want to leave the next morning, but we had church, so we made him leave.
Logan LOVED his cradle basket! This type of Cradle Basket is Navajo. It can be used for a baby girl or boy.
Lilly in her cradle basket. This type of cradle basket is Ute. This kind of cradle basket is for a girl. Because of the shape of the female part. :-)
Sept 21 we went to a Dream Catcher Pow Wow. They flew in LaMarque Ward. He is a Pro Basketball player. He was a motivational speaker to encourage our kids to follow their dreams! He brought 2 friends with him to speak with the kids too. Then they gave out books to kids in 6th grade and older, and he signed the books for them! LaMarque asked Eileen if they would put on a Pow Wow for him, and she agreed. So the kids got the dance for him. The Nebo Title VII put Kody as one of the people in charge of the Pow Wow. He helped Son Sanchez get people on and off the stage and whatever else they made him do.
Thank you for Nana, Sarah, Kyle, Braden, Katie, Rachael, Caleb, Chase, Ayslee, Grandma Kitt, Amy and Lyla for coming and supporting Kody!!!!
I am really proud of Kody. Kody is such a great kid! We also went to a Parent/ Teacher conference at his school before the Pow Wow. All his teachers only said positive things about him. They talk about what a hard worker and how hard he tries in school. I am so proud of him!
Lilly and Logan on Sept 21, 2011. They are such fun CUTE babies!!!
Daddy teasing Logan! Mean daddy!!!!
Sweet Lilly Bean
A very happy baby!
At this time, we are missing DJ terribly! DJ is a GREAT kid, but made some bad choices. So for the next year he is in a group home. Once he starts moving up in levels in the group home, he will get to visit home. But he will just have to do lots of therapy right now. We hope that DJ will get over all this and put this behind him. He can use this as a stepping stone for the future! The therapy will most likely last over a year, but he has lots of support from home, and we are all pulling for him! We LOVE DJ! So please pray for him!
